+ You can say N here if you don't intend to connect your Linux box to
+ any other computer at all or if all your connections will be over a
+ telephone line with a modem either via UUCP (UUCP is a protocol to
+ forward mail and news between unix hosts over telephone lines; read
+ the UUCP-HOWTO, available from
+ <http://www.linuxdoc.org/docs.html#howto>) or dialing up a shell
+ account or a BBS, even using term (term is a program which gives you
+ almost full Internet connectivity if you have a regular dial up
+ shell account on some Internet connected Unix computer. Read
+ <http://www.bart.nl/~patrickr/term-howto/Term-HOWTO.html>).
+
+ You'll have to say Y if your computer contains a network card that
+ you want to use under Linux (make sure you know its name because you
+ will be asked for it and read the Ethernet-HOWTO (especially if you
+ plan to use more than one network card under Linux)) or if you want
+ to use SLIP (Serial Line Internet Protocol is the protocol used to
+ send Internet traffic over telephone lines or null modem cables) or
+ CSLIP (compressed SLIP) or PPP (Point to Point Protocol, a better
+ and newer replacement for SLIP) or PLIP (Parallel Line Internet
+ Protocol is mainly used to create a mini network by connecting the
+ parallel ports of two local machines) or AX.25/KISS (protocol for
+ sending Internet traffic over amateur radio links).
+
+ Make sure to read the NET-3-HOWTO. Eventually, you will have to read
+ Olaf Kirch's excellent and free book "Network Administrator's
+ Guide", to be found in <http://www.linuxdoc.org/docs.html#guide>. If
+ unsure, say Y.
